Sunday Special – the bags on insta this September

Something for the weekend is back for September and instagram has been trawled. And this month it has been all about the four cities’ SS’21 fashion shows; from New York to Paris (with the official opening of Paris on 28 September).

So, if you’re sitting comfortably, here’s a whistle stop tour of the shows’ styles.
